Michael Porter, Jr. scores 19 points in loss to Lakers

Michael Porter, Jr. scored 19 points (8-15 FG, 2-7 3-pt, 1-2 FT) while adding six rebounds, a steal, and two turnovers in a team-high 40 minutes in a loss to Los Angeles on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

MPJ actually snapped a six-game streak of scoring 20+ points on Monday night. His ability to score - and specifically score efficiently on a nightly basis - has been a sight to behold this season. He's been one of the true breakout stars this year in fantasy hoops and should be viewed as a late first/early second round pick in drafts next year, especially with Jamal Murray (torn ACL) expected to miss the majority of next season.

Michael Porter, Jr. drops 25 points on Clippers on Saturday

Michael Porter, Jr. continued his recent scoring surge with 25 points (10-16 FG, 4-7 3-pt, 1-1 FT) to go with seven rebounds, five assists, and two turnovers in a 110-104 win over the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact

The five assists were actually a season-high for MPJ (and matched a career-high) so that was encouraging to see. The phenomenal 22-year-old averaged 23.9 PPG (on 55.3% FG) in the month of April and started off the month of May with a bang as well. It's been a truly special breakout season for the young forward, and fantasy owners should continue to ride him through the remainder of the season with four more games in the coming week.

Michel Porter, Jr. scores 23 points with three blocks in win over Toronto

Michael Porter, Jr. stayed hot on Thursday, scoring 23 points (8-19 FG, 3-8 3-pt, 4-4 FT) to go with seven rebounds, an assist, three blocks, and three turnovers in a 121-111 victory over Toronto.

Fantasy Impact

MPJ is averaging 29.4 PPG over the past five games in addition to 2.0 BPG over that same span. He has emerged as a truly dominant scorer in his second season in Denver. After a back injury in college caused him to slide in the 2018 NBA Draft, MPJ is showing that his back is fully capable of carrying the scoring load for the Nuggets as well as carrying his fantasy owners towards a championship.

Michael Porter, Jr. pours in 28 points in win over Pelicans

Michael Porter, Jr. was at it again on Wednesday night, scoring 28 points (12-21 FG, 3-8 3-pt, 1-2 FT) while grabbing eight rebounds and adding an assist, a steal, and a block in a 114-112 win over New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact

MPJ has truly come into his own this season and the loss of Jamal Murray (torn ACL) has cleared the runway for Porter, Jr. to score at will on a nightly basis. He's a blossoming star. MPJ and the Nuggets are right back in action tomorrow against Toronto.

Michael Porter, Jr. does it again, scores team-high 31 points in victory

Michael Porter, Jr. stayed red hot on Monday night, scoring a team-high 31 points (12-19 FG, 3-6 3-pt, 4-5 FT) to go with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal, and a block in 36 minutes during a 120-96 win over Memphis.

Fantasy Impact

Make that 70 points (35.0 PPG) in the past two games for MPJ who is blossoming as a true star right before our eyes. He could prove to be an absolute league-winner at this rate, as he takes full advantage of all the extra offensive opportunities given the injuries to Jamal Murray (torn ACL) and Will Barton (hamstring). Porter, Jr. is playing his way into potential first-round fantasy value next season and is handsomely rewarding those who took a chance on him in the early rounds this past winter. The Nuggets have three more games this week, starting Wednesday against Zion Williamson and the Pelicans.
